Vassily Ivanchuk lost on time at the Candidates tournament for the third time already. According to his today's opponent Alexander Grischuk , "It's your own responsibility to think about the time. The problem isn't in this time control, but it is that we are all spoilt by the fact that most of the tournaments are held with time increment, so it's very difficult to switch. I think this is the right time control."

"If I had couple of points more, at certain point I could have agreed on a draw, but in this situation the draw would mean the end of the tournament for me," Grischuk said. "I haven't won a world championship game for 6 years and 25 games. I feel like Gabriel Garcia Marquez and 100 Years of Solitude."

Both players were already short of time close to 20th move, but Ivanchuk's time trouble seemed especially dangerous. Grischuk managed to gain some advantage and used it for putting some pressure. As a result, Vassily couldn't cope neither with the time trouble, not with the complications.
